In recent years microalgae have been recognized as potential industrial source of lipids/oils for nutritional and bioenergy applications. Microalgae as a resource have advantage due to their high photosynthetic efficiency, higher surface area productivity than crop plants, wide environmental adaptability, simple nutritional requirements and lipid accumulation property under stressful growth conditions. Further they do not compete with food crops for land and can be grown using non-potable waters and non-arable land. In addition, the microalgae biodiversity is enormous with ubiquitous occurrence in variety of aquatic ecosystems. Despite these advantages, microalgae based lipid production has not yet realized its commercial potential due to several gaps in technology such as untapped biodiversity, low biomass productivities and energy intensive downstream processing. Hence the present study focuses on prospecting the biodiversity of microalgae from different water habitats, understanding their stress adaptation and assessing their potential for the production of lipids.
